Thai Shrimp Chili Soup

This is a dish we fixed just before New Years. We will fix this one again.

35 min 15 min prep

#14 ounces light coconut milk
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
2-3 teaspoons chili paste with garlic
1 1/2-2 lbs uncooked shrimp, peeled (medium-size)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
14 1/2 ounces diced tomatoes, undrained (I use ones with green chilies)
1/2 cup sliced green onions
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced (I use a mix of crimini and oyster)
chopped cilantro (for garnish, optional)

Combine coconut milk, ginger and chili paste in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add shrimp, reduce heat, and simmer for 3 minutes, or until shrimp is cooked through. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon.
Combine flour and soy sauce in a small bowl, and stir with a whisk, then add to coconut milk in saucepan.
Add tomatoes, green onion, lime juice and sugar, then bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes until mixture thickens slightly, stirring occasionally.
Stir in mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes.
Return the shrimp to the pan and cook until thoroughly heated.
Serve sprinkled with cilantro, if desired.

We did not change anything and the first bite was wow but our taste buds adjusted and it must have some drug in as we could not stop and the heat and fire seemed to get better or our buds were burnt.LOL
